Firstly, I am unable to build cups. Posted separate mail on that.

The issues with cups dependency are:

1. One may not want printing support at all. Why build cups unnecessarily

2. One may not want cups as one might prefer lpd.

3. This is not an issue, though a usage pattern: I prefer printing pdfs
only. If I create an office doc, I'd export it is pdf, preview and then
print the pdf. Somehow, with pdf, feel more confident of it being rendered
exactly as shown on screen.
